Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz vs Monterrey football tips

Monterrey have taken just one point from their last three Mexico. Primera Division matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Monterrey are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz should prove no easy feat either – Monterrey haven’t won against any Mexico. Primera Division leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Mexico. Primera Division’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Monterrey are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Monterrey took a point away from Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz (1-1 draw).

Notably, Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Mexico. Primera Division away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Monterrey, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Monterrey getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Monterrey are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz hold the best away record in the Mexico. Primera Division (W8 D2 L1). Monterrey’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Tiburones Rojos de Veracruzns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz win at 15/2 with bet365.
